Description: Our restaurant has been a landmark in the Jordaan neighbourhood for almost 20 years, where it is known for making both local guests and tourists feel immediately welcome with its warm and friendly service. Our dishes are simple, fresh, flavourful and well priced. We offer a range of pizza and pasta dishes as well as an extensive selection of meat or fish courses, all accompanied with the perfect Italian wine. Our restaurant is always full of people drawn to its winning combination of delicious food, reasonable prices and intimate ambience, we recommend that reservations be made between Thursday and Saturday.

“Good pizza, but not italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

It's a good pizza for my opinion, but the restaurant is not italian. The menu' has a lot of language mistakes and the staff is not itlalian, but they are nice people.
It's not expensive for Amsterdam, so I invite you to go there if you want a good pizza.

“Great Find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Arrived on a busy Saturday evening but managed to bag the last available table! Would definatley recommend finding this place if you're in the area. A nice break from the generic tourist fare around leiseplein etc! Really good steak and pasta and very good portion sizes. Reasonable prices as well!
